Being White in the Anti-Racism Movement - Living Room Conversations

Living room conversations
Tuesday November 24, 2020
4:30pm - 6:00pm

Facilitators: Molly McAlister 

Terms like white fragility, white guilt, white privilege, and white ally have been inundating the media as the unrest in response to the death of George Floyd persists. What does it mean to be white in today's society? How has this impacted your life, your self-perception and your involvement with conversations around race?

Living Room Conversations offers a simple, sociable, and structured way to practice communicating differences, while building understanding and relatioships. Typically for the session, 4 -7 people meet in person, or by video call for about 90 minutes. They listen to and are heard by others on one of the topics. Rathe than debating or convincing others, we take turns talking, sharing, learning, and encouraging. No preparation is required. Background links with balanced views are available on some topic pages onlines. Anyone is welcome to participate. As SCTCC students, we have an opportunity. Respect. Relate. Connect.

After registering, you will receive a confirmation email containing information about joining the meeting.
